A brand new stand-alone romantic comedy from the bestselling, award-winning team of Sarina Bowen & Elle Kennedy.

Hosting her brother’s wedding for an MVP guest list is the challenge of Jess Canning’s life. Already the family screw-up, she can’t afford to fail. And nobody (nobody!) can learn of the colossal mistake she made with the best man during a weak moment last spring. It was wrong, and there will not be a repeat. Absolutely not. Even if he is the sexiest thing on two legs.

Blake Riley sees the wedding as fate’s gift to him. Jess is the maid of honor and he’s the best man? Let the games begin. So what if he’s facing a little (fine, a lot) of resistance? He just needs to convince the stubborn blonde that he’s really a good boy with a bad rap. Luckily, every professional hockey player knows that you’ve got to make an effort if you want to score.

But Jess has more pressing issues to deal with than sexy-times with a giant man-child. Such as: Will the ceremony start on time, even though someone got grandma drunk? Does glitter ever belong at a wedding? And is it wrong to murder the best man?

Caution: May cause accidental aspiration of tea or coffee. Do not read in a public place where loud laughter is inappropriate. Contains hot but hilarious hockey players, puppy cuddling and a snarky pair of underwear.

I loved this!! Blake and Jess were a good couple and great as individuals. I thought Blake would annoy me more, but I found him endearing for the most part. And the Jamie/Wes wedding ahhhhhhh! It made me smile and I was happy they were in the book so much! It was fun to read new words from Elle and Sarina again, I def have to get the second book and hope they write more.
i want more

Can you fall in love with someone you’ve never even met?

Hailey Taylor Emery has a hunch that her favorite client at Fetch–an anonymous virtual assistant service–is actually hockey star Matt Eriksson.

Although it’s against the rules for her to check his file, she’s 95% sure she spends at least part of each day texting with her lifelong crush and catering to his every need. Still nursing a wounded heart thanks to her recent breakup, Hailey is perfectly content with some harmless online flirting…until she has to meet her client. Face to face. Cue: utter panic.

Matt Eriksson is no stranger to heartbreak. He’s still not over the destruction of his marriage, and it sucks to be the only guy on the team who knows the truth–that hockey and long-term relationships are a toxic mix. He barely sees his kids, and dealing with his ex makes him feel insane. The only person in his life who seems to understand is someone who won’t show her pretty face.

But it’s nothing that a pair of fourth row hockey seats can’t fix. Hailey can’t resist the offer. Matt can’t resist Hailey. Good thing he doesn’t have to. Fire up the kiss cam!

Warning: Contains rabid hockey fans, misunderstood dick pics, hockey players at the opera and exploding ovaries.

Cuuuute! I just love this series! Hailey and Matt were a sweet pair and I loved his little daughters. Their relationship progression was perfect and the way he took the time to truly understand Hailey’s personality quirks and made her feel comfortable about them made me happy. I also really appreciate that the other WAGS (who in another series would be completely bitchy and unwelcoming) are supportive of each other, welcoming, and gracious. Female friendships ftw! The next book is totally going to be about O’Connor and the new coach with the figure skating past, yeah? I hope there’s a next book in any case.

    I thought Blake would annoy me too, but the guy was oddly very charming! YES to the Jamie-Wes wedding. it made me so so happy!
    I really adored Hailey and Matt’s book too. Usually, I’m a little ehh about kids in books, but Matt’s twins were so precious.
    Oh gosh, I really really really hope we’re still getting the next book. We haven’t heard anything from Sarina and Elle about it. 😦
